Happy New Year!

If you haven't seen the is up and our January kit "Spiffy" is up for sale! Yippee! If you haven't had a chance to check it out, it is a must! I had so much fun playing with this kit. Here are a few of the projects I made with it. Aren't the Heidi Swapp ghost clocks just the best? I also used her journaling spots to make a funky scalloped edge around my photo.

I tucked a loop of polka dot ribbon under the edge of the photo also, which I thought was perfect for my snow themed page. I also love the look of the chipboard letters staggered (using upper and lowercase mixed together.) The Heidi Swapp ghost clocks are 6 inches in diameter just to give you an idea of what they are like in person.
I finished it off by adding a funky hand stitched border to one corner of the page. It's definitely "freehand." LOL.
This is my silly "resolutions" page. I had the idea to use the journaling spots in a circle with the title placed in the middle of it. I used magazine ads, an old calendar and a few googly eyes to make it what I had envisioned. I also cut a circle from a photo of my blog because I want to remind myself to document the "details." I added the bread tag just for fun. I was going to journal next to it that another resolution of mine is to reduce and reuse, but I ran out of journaling spots. I could have added another ring of circle journal spots though to accommodate all of my resolutions. Is there anyone else out there that feels the need to make a million resolutions? Or is it just me...I could make a very long list I think!
The palm tree is from an old calendar and the number "13" is cut from the fabric in the kit. It isn't significant really, but you could use the number of resolutions that you were making for your page. As I said though, I'm sure I would have more than just 13.

This one is really simple and totally uncomplicated. Some of my layouts are like that, where you are just using the pictures and the story without many embellishments.
I used cream colored paint to outline the 5X7 picture here and on the opposite page as well.

I still may go back and add a little embellishment here and there. I do that from time to time. Sometimes a page just doesn't quite look complete.
I LOvE that blue car paper by Glitz Design. It is one of my all-time favorites! I am going to go get some more scrapbooking done tonight. The kids are already in bed and totally exhausted from staying up way later than usual last night. Hope you all had a safe and happy New Year's Eve. I started the first day of 2009 with a prayer asking God not for things and blessings for me, but for me to be a blessing to others. I wonder just how that perspective and attitude would change the world, if we tried to put others before ourselves. I'm excited to see just what's in store for 2009! I pray it's your best year yet!
